W. 1942 Saturday: German soldiers continue grinding forward against the ever-diminishing Soviet defenders, their numbers being slashed by continuous aerial bombardment, infantry, and armor assaults, seeking to capture the entire waterfront of the city as it stretches north and south along the Volga River. The Russian forces in the city are determined to cling to their positions so that the counterattack- when it comes- will devastate the Axis forces besieging the city. Russian commanding General Vasily Ivanovich Chuikov moves to safer headquarters and it is important to note that sludge ice was beginning to flow down the Volga River from the north which would soon clog the river before turning it to solid ice.

Trump approves major disaster relief for California, after FEMA denied it, because, once again, much of the state is burning down.  Governor Gavin Newsom, Democrat, begged for the relief and in a phone call with the president, the president found a way to deliver him the much-needed aid.   When this current fire season ends, clear-cut the forests, and stop allowing fresh water to flow out to sea, you Democrat imbecile!
  58. 2020 Saturday A: Due to rising numbers of Chi-Vi stats across Europe, many European locales are reimposing draconian measures to thwart the Chi-Com gift to the world, the Kung Flu.  Elsewhere, the Azerbaijanis blast Armenia for having fired Soviet-era SCUD missiles into its second largest city, knocking down 20 residential buildings, killing 13, and wounding hundreds of others.  They call it a ‘war crime.’  Meanwhile, citizens of Thailand take to the streets of Bangkok, demanding former military general and current Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha resign.  The protesters are also unhappy with the king, someone whom if YOU are found guilty of criticizing can land you up to 15 years in prison.
  59. 2020 Saturday B: Following yesterday’s assassination of a Parisian schoolteacher for having said something negative towards the ‘prophet,’ ‘founding father of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, police identify the slain suspect as an 18-year-old Chechen student.  The scumbag sawed the head off the schoolteacher with a knife which led Parisian law enforcement to round up as many members of the family of this POS living on French soil.  France: YOU have a massive problem with all these Muslims living on your soil, round them up, strip them of citizenship, and deport them.
  60. 2020 Saturday  C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 39,502,909 confirmed cases, +376,697, 1,106,795, confirmed deaths, +5,698, and 27,147,928 confirmed recoveries, 191,015.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 8,194,266 confirmed cases, UP 84,455 from yesterday’s reporting, 222,404 confirmed deaths, UP 1,084, and 5,211,232 confirmed recoveries, UP 20,578.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 874,505 confirmed cases, 16,933 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 14,007 confirmed cases, 185 confirmed deaths, and 10,947 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 101,540 confirmed cases, 2,338 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: South Dakota- currently, they have 32,611 confirmed cases, 315 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Kristi Noem for behaving like your typical Democratic politician- thank you.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 302,770 confirmed cases, 2,190 confirmed deaths, and 265,445 confirmed recoveries.
  61. 2020 Saturday  D: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3500, the jackpot being $18 million, in California: 07, 19, 25, 29, 42, and Mega 01.  (The highest winners were two people who had five numbers for a prize of $16,992 apiece).  Here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #786 with the jackpot of $82 million: 06, 10, 31, 37, 44, and Power 23.  (Highest winners were 64 people who had four numbers for a prize of $213 apiece).

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#PF001.1v Final Cut #22 05-04-2020 (400)

 

The final album by the (semi-) original Pink Floyd came out on March 21, 1983. The band now consisted of Roger Waters, David Gilmour, and Nick Mason PLUS some studio musicians. “The Final Cut” was the final gasp of this lineup as the band was worn out, both as a group and as individuals. At the time, many fans viewed it as a boring, depressing effort and so the band died sans as last gasp. Over the years, however, it has come to more attention, garnered much more praise than it originally did and now is a must-own album like the rest of their catalog. We hope that you will seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music. You will enjoy it.
